Volunteer of the Week
 
Mrs. Sylvie Daigle
Duke Hospital Auxiliary
 
 
 
 
 
When you’re facing a crisis, the little things can really mean a lot, and no one knows this better than Sylvie Daigle. As a Gift Shop Volunteer at Duke Hospital, Sylvie is there to cheer up patients, their families, and the staff that cares for them, to help clients to pick out gifts, and to provide a listening ear. As a Kidz Need Hugz volunteer, she provides companionship for young patients and much-needed breaks for caregivers. Sylvie’s compassion is evident to everyone she comes into contact with, and her hard work, accountability, and devotion are recognized by those she works with. In the words of Joy Parton, her Volunteer Coordinator, “Sylvie has been a blessing” to the Duke Hospital Auxiliary.
 
Thank you, Sylvie, for your kindness, your generosity, and your wonderful spirit!
